4. Next, sign your script with the preferred Code Signing Certificate. If you have multiple Code Signing Certificates in the USB Hard Token based on the order of 0, 1, 2… as mentioned in Step 3, you may need to enter the password to access the token after running below cmdlet

For this example, I have created a PowerShell script name “testscript.ps1” and I will used the Code Signing Certificate which is located on location [0] –

Cmdlet to use:
Set-AuthenticodeSignature <script> @(Get-ChildItem Cert:\CurrentUser\My -CodeSign)<Location>
<script> - your PowerShell script
<Location> - Location of the Certificate in the format of [0] or [1] or [2] and so on
 
For example:
Set-AuthenticodeSignature .\testscript.ps1 @(Get-ChildItem Cert:\CurrentUser\My -CodeSign)[0]
Make sure the Status is set to Valid after running the cmdlet.
